A personal question! Looking at a laptop for a friend whos wireless has suddenly stopped working and it appears the driver has been uninstalled (wouldn't suprise me if they broke it!). When trying to reinstall it/point to the driver files it fails the install and says "incorrect function" even though it is the right driver! Tried everything I can think of!
Any ideas? Windows 7...

1. Windows 7 32 bit or 64 bit ?
2. Make and model of wireless card ?
3. Which driver are you getting and where are you getting it from ?
4. If you completely remove the driver in safe mode with networking and if you go to downloadcenter.intel.com ( if it is an intel wireless card ) you can use there driver scanning tool
Can't upload screen grabs but there is a 'Run Intel Driver update utility' button at the top left and on the 2nd screen there is a 'check your system for latest updates' button in the middle of the screen.
You will have to allow and install the plug ins / add ons during the process of the scanner tool installation / detection process. Also am not sure if it will work correctly in safe mode so you may have to reboot and re try step 4 whilst normally logged on as an admin user ( domain or local )

Just to confirm are you making sure the drop down menu has the relevant OS selected ( windows 7 32 bit ) as per below

Wireless WLAN 1510 Half MiniCard (4322)
Wireless WLAN 1397 Half MiniCard (4312bg)
Not sure if the below link will work but should hopefully be the correct link
Obviously before downloading, click on the description field to ensure it is for 32 and 64 bit versions of windows 7

Looks like it is based on the BCM43xx series ( people seem to be able to use the BCM 4312 drivers ) so Broadcom 4312 drivers if the dell ones are failing
Wrong manufacturer but seems to be the BCM 4312 and BCM 4313
OR the one from gateway ( appears to be an older version ), looking via google I can't seem to find a valid download from broadcom for the 4312 series of WLAN drivers
Failing that you could contact Broadcom support to get the BCM 4312 drivers ( wireless card drivers for the broadcom 4312 series of wireless cards )
